, that is, said mitt romney's policies would favor the rich and mitt romney doesn't care about people like them. president obama's driving that message, going after mitt romney's predictions that he'll be tough on china saying that if you look at romney's record at bain capital, all that talk is fake. >> when you hear this newfound outrage, when you see these ads, these running problems seem to get tough on china, it seems a lot like that fox saying we need more secure chicken coops. i mean, it's just not credible. >> and larry, you can hear the confidence in president obama's voice because not only in ohio is he ahead, but in all of the major swing states president obama's got a lead right now. mitt romney's got to find a way to turn that around, turn it around in the debates, and maybe the tax cut issue that you're talking about will be one tool in that arsenal. back to you, larry. >> many thanks to john harwood. now for some reason on the trail today, mitt romney said he's going to dial back on taxes. >> individual income taxes are the ones i want to reform, make them simpler, bring the

the president and mitt romney in the same city giving dueling foreign policy speeches. the romney campaign season opening in the wake of the terror attack in libya questions about the president's mideast policy. now as you note both men here in the battleground of ohio today sort of shadowing one another, domestic issues more the focus of course here in the midwest. 18 electoral votes in ohio. no republican has won the white house without winning this state first. as you know "the new york times" cbs battleground poll shows the president up 10 points. 53 to 4 3-point it. there is a lot of talk about republicans that there has been an over sam blink of democratic voters and the votes are being screwed against the romney campaign. nonetheless if you look at "the new york times" battleground poll, for example, previously the president only had a single digit lead here in ohio, now up to a double digit lead. even if it's off a little bit the bottom line is the trajectory is favoring the president at least for now arthel. arthel: on top of all that i should say the economy there in ohio seems t
and mitt romney gave foreign-policy speeches yesterday in new york. on this morning's washington journal, " we talk about foreign policy in the presidential race with a former undersecretary of state. morning, nicholas burns, former undersecretary of state from 2005 to 2008 for the george w. bush administration, currently teaching as a professor of diplomacy and international politics at harvard. thank you for joining us. you heard the speeches from new york and the play on these doing foreign policy points, what is your take away as far as each candidate and what they had to say? guest: it is very interesting the foreign policy has made a comeback in this campaign. it is a good thing for the americans who live in this world. i thought that the president gave a very soft speech yesterday. covering a lot of ground, focusing on the middle east and these tragic events that took place two weeks ago, the assassination of the ambassador and his diplomatic colleagues in libya. president made two important points, saying that americans obviously want to show great religious tolerance for the vie
with the idea that romney actually has a plan. so he has to show a little more leg in terms of policy than he did at the convention. >> his race from the beginning is, i'm not barack obama, he is. >> how is that working? >> but here's the problem, you act as though his policies are actually popular. the vast majority of americans, the polling shows ryan's pick add medicare at front and center, especially in florida -- he has a problem -- >> i'm not arguing that. >> i don't think he's going to be able to avoid. i think you are going to get some substance. i think you need to get some personality. you need to get some spontaneity. i'm not sure either of these two guys is good at spontaneity. if you can fix spontaneity, you've achieved success in politics. >> here's one good piece of news for romney. whatever's happening in sort of the inside washington game, i saw a poll today, i think it was abc news said, 52% of americans expect obama to win. something like 25%, 30% expect romney to win. with the viewers, may not not -- maybe they won't all be watching. >> skewed polls. >> christie is saying,
a more effective version. as we carry on george w. bush's policies. on israel i think some of the romney charges are accurate. the fact is that the president has gratuitously alienated the prime minister of israel on an issue frankly was not relevant, which was settlements. and i don't think, unlike bill clinton, and george w. bush, that this president has the kind of emotional sensitivity that think is required to create some measure of partnership with the israelis even though netanyahu is a difficult guy. on syria, look, let's be clear. we're coming off the two longest wars in american history. the last thing we need is another military adventure that isn't thought through very clearly. on iran, no matter who is president we have got big trouble coming. israelis rightly need to figure out a way to prevent iran from enriching uranium. the question is, whether or not you can do that short of war? and right now, neither barack obama nor mitt romney, nor benjamin netanyahu have answers to that. so --. >> brought us through some very important regions in the middle east and it is such a bi
have heard and hear him write these past few months? is there a romney doctrine on foreign policy? how would you encapsulate it? guest: i don't know if there is a romney doctrine yet. governor romney is a very smart, successful person. my guess is that it is not the issue he wants to emphasize in the campaign. once the campaign to be about the economy and the unemployment rate. it is a difficult position for a republican to be running against a democrat who has a strong record on national security. that has been difficult for the romney campaign. i worked for republicans and democrats in various administrations, so i am not a political person. but it seems to me that republicans always try to run to the right of the democrats, and sometimes accused democrats of being weak on a national security. in this election you have president obama, who has taken us out of iraq, president obama who has waged a very tough war against al qaeda, has gone after the al qaeda leadership, notably osama bin laden, who has taken out some of the terrorists in yemen, including awlaki, an important terrorist
to say the president's policies have failed or does romney need to layout in terms that americans can understand what he would do to bring this debt and deficit down? >> i think you've hit the nail on the head, he must spell out what he's going to do about this huge problem. in my opinion, what he must do is spell out how he will grow america's economy. we must grow at at least a 4% rate. if we can do that we raise the level of employment, we raise more money in taxes, we cut the deficit and if we have a long-term plan to deal with our spending, and i stress long term, that is an answer to our problems. essentially mr. romney has to tell the world how will he grow america's economy compared to the miserable rate of growth that we've had for the last three and a half years. >> reporter: it's going to be an interesting debate tomorrow night. thank you so much. the president and governor romney may be taking time off the campaign trail today for debate practice but the vice presidental candidates are not. vice president joe biden spoke to voters in charlotte, north carolina a short time
not just on what romney says are ineffectual policies like the president's healthcare law and stimulus packages, but the cost of those policies as compared to romney's own perscriptions that call for smaller less expensive government. for the president what he's going to try to do is say look, maybe things aren't so great but it is partly the fault of george w. bush and the republicans who were in office prior to the democrats taking control in 2009, so we need time to fix it, and by the way, the president will also say that he wants to increase taxes on people like mitt romney to help pay down some of that debt. >> reporter: we just put of that graphic there showing the $16 trillion of debt and there are so many digits it almost doesn't fit on the tv screen across the screen there, as you can see. but haven't americans in some way become number to astronomical numbers? how serious is this in. >> they have become number. is it the new normal this massive spilling of red ink but it raises three problems which i don't think the nation has got even to grips with yet. number one our econom
? caller: yes. i plan to vote for mitt romney. host: because of foreign policy issues or economic/domestic issues? caller: both. host: now to a democratic caller in pennsylvania, don. caller: the u.n. has failed is rail many times. one time when egypt threatened to close the strait and the war against the egyptians started. they failed israel miserably in the north at the southern part of a non. southern part of lebanon. they promised that has a law would not be allowed to re-arm. -- hezbollah would not be allowed to re-arm. on august 10 of 2012 in the inquiry there was an article called "terrorism and palestinian statehood," . read.people should " hos and this on twitter -- the washington times has this headline -- calling for the policy makers in the united states to put the fiscal cliff ahead of politics. in texas, a democratic caller, henry. caller: good morning. romney is about a year-and-a- half older than i am. i remember in the 1960's they were drafting everybody like crazy. from what i've understand, he went on the religious sabbatical and took a religious draft exemption
's -- krauthammer talks about -- romney does talk about foreign policy, a 20th century entitlement system, he talks about america and the need to be unapologetic. he talks about all these things. the problem romney has is he can't go a week talking about these things because he is tripping over his own words and gaffes whether the clint eastwood moment or running to criticize obama for the libya attacks and each and every time he tries to build momentum around these themes, build a larger place to get obama out -- he over shadows. >> you just said theme. that is what charles krauthammer says. he said if there were an over arching thing mitt romney was carrying from foreign policy -- >> you can only build that theme if you do it day in and day out and obama has done his theme which is romney is this rich guy who is going to outsource everything. he's been tripped up every now and then but by and large has been consistent. mitt romney has been his own worst enemy. >> that is the problem kelly. they don't have a big over arching theme as charles krauthammer says that carries them through a week where
is the media on this? governor mitt romney spoke to a foreign-policy topic forum at valley college in california. it shows president obama leading in pennsylvania by more than a point. but that did not stop the governor from blasting the president for calling deadly turmoil around the muslim world, a bump in the road. >> i don't consider 20 or 30,000 people dying just a bump in the road. or a muslim brotherhood president in egypt a bump in the road. i don't consider the killing of our diplomats in libya as a bump in the road, and i sure as heck don't consider iran becoming nuclear, a bump in the road. we need someone who recognizes what is ahead and what is willing to be done as a leader. megyn: president obama continues his campaign again today. megyn: off to the critical swing state of virginia. new polls show the race tightening their grip president obama leading governor romney by two points. 46% to 44%. that is within the margin of error. here is the policy average of all polls in virginia. the president of about four points. now some politics watchers are suggesting all of th
a cartoon. mitt romney -- the u.s. should immediately bomb england. foreign policy with mitt romney. this is a cartoon that i had in my comic strip. we each have these -- i do not know. i am not sure if best and -- i promised i would not miss up your comic strip. we each do a comic strip so we are lucky as far as editorial cartoons. good to use the other side of our brands to read comics. i have been accused of making my way to political. this is my 9/11 tribute. it actually was originally a long strip. you have to turn your head to see it. i made it into an editorial cartoon. here is mitt romney having a candlelight vigil for osama bin laden. this is a cartoon i did the year after 9/11 about maybe some of the causes behind 9/11. this is also the year after 911. i call it the twin tepees. it marks the genocide that has happened. it was a reaction to some of the more excess of chest beating about 9/11. we never remember the other tragedies that have been on american soil. i do not really have anything to say about this. [laughter] i think the ladies and know what i am talking about.
. what mitt romney needs to do is say look, i'm the candidate who's going to deliver more work and better and higher wages through my plan an there are a few things like energy policy and making the case for tax reform. he's made it much, much harder for himself than he should have. >> go ahead. >> it's a little hard for mitt romney to talk about what he is going to do on health care when he said he is going to repeal all of the affordable care act then say i'm going to keep some parts of it. so again, it's sort of like dude, exactly what are you trying to do here? i think the difference between george w. bush, he ran as a compassionate conservative and he had his conservative base locked up. romney's dealing with people whobds we're not really trusting you. if you're the obama campaign, what jim messina should do, he should play the video of alec baldwin and glenn ross saying always be closing. the one thing you cannot understand, a poll's a poll. folks have not cast any ballots, so the obama campaign should stay aggressive. stay absolutely aggressive because if you just sit back a littl
, it didn't. it's actually worse now than it's been. mitt romney's also sharpening his attacks when it comes to president obama's handling of foreign policy. the publican candidate keyed in on this phrase that the president udu a miservi when he was asked about the recent unrest in the muslim world. >> i think it was absolutely the right thing for us to do to align ourselves with democry, universal rights, a notion that people have -- have to be able to participate in their own governance. but i'm -- i was pretty certain and continue to be pretty certain that there are going to be bumps in the road. >> he said the developments of the middle east are bumps in the road. yethyti bumps in the road. we had an ambassador assassinated, we had a muslim brotherhood member elected to the presidency of egypt, 20,000 pele have been killed in syria. these e not bumps in the road eseanlis, these are developments we don't want to see. this is time for a president who will shape events in the middle east not just be at mercy to the events in the middle east. >> mike, we talk about how mitt romney's out of t
of ideological divergence between romney and obama. those are the two critical issues here. on foreign policy generally the president has had an advantage. somewhat unusual for a democrat. seen more capable handling foreign policy. his job approval have been better than ratings on domestic policy. but with netanyahu raising the question -- with the differences being made so visible by netanyahu's own visibility, the question for jewish support in a couple places that could matter. it's not inconceivable given the arguments from the israeli prime minister. >> they're not going to meet face-to-face. they're both obviously here in the united states. but there will be a phone call tomorrow. what's the political fallout from this decision that someone made that the president should not get together with netanyahu during these final weeks of this election? >> well, look, relationships are fraught between president obama and netanyahu as they were between clinton and netanyahu. netanyahu and his view of the world and what it takes to make israel secure is closer to a neocon republican view of what i
. what's your policy? >>> a unook at mitt romney, the picture of the republican nominee long before he became a politician that you've probably never seen before. you'll see it right here in "the situation room." ♪ [ male announcer ] how do you engineer a true automotive breakthrough? ♪ you give it bold new styling, unsurpassed luxury and nearly 1,000 improvements. introducing the redesigned 2013 glk. see your authorized mercedes-benz dealer for exceptional offers through mercedes-benz financial services. and get outstanding deals with the travelocity fall hotel sale. you can save up to 40% on select hotels. so book your hotel now and save up to 40%. hurry, offer ends soon. book now at travelocity. >>> strong words today from the defense secretary leon panetta declaring unequivocally that the deadly attack on the united states ambassador chris stevens and three other americans in libya was in his words clearly the work of terrorists. >> the reason i think it pretty clearly it was a terrorist attack is because a group of terrorists obviously conducted that attack on the consulate. a
people that we should hear from on foreign policy given all of the missteps that mitt romney has made. but look, wolf, beyond the political nature of this whole inquiry, we need to look at the fact that al qaeda leaders posted a video a day before the attack on september 10th which mr. alvarez wa ri wanted to avhe of one of his deputin libya. he called upon libyans to, you know, try torounrest. so look i thin one of the things we should do right now is to let congress -- members of congress investigate this. they will investigate this. senator kerry along with senator has sent a letter to the administration answering very important questions that i think the american people will want to know. on the short end of this, i doubt very seriously that the administration will try to mislead the american people at a time when as we all know that this administration has been hunting down al qaeda leaders all throughout the middle east and northern africa as well. >> i don't know if you heard, david, mike huckaby suggests this could be worse than watergate. watergate he points out no one was ki
the message is one governor romney brought here two days ago is that the economy cannot stand another four years of the president's failed economic policies and they're out here in the mountain west and the great plains and hear congressman ryan talk about the keystone pipeline and focusing on the country's national resources, bringing energy jobs online and putting people back to work and expecting the president to hit him on other things. >> one thing, though, ron, the obama campaign said, though, if romney loses ohio it is likely game over. is there a sense that the republican campaign is feeling that pressure? >> reporter: yeah. i think they're acknowledging they're behind. they don't believe it's game over and no republican president ever has gotten to the white house without taking ohio and even though he's behind, campaign insiders saying that their internal polling is much closer race than the public polls and will leave them where they are. they think they have a fight in ohio on their hands. >> ron mott reporting. now christin welker in bowling green. >> reporter: good afternoon
romney says there is a model he's promised a veto. the gerry before the radical policy prescription called deportation, the idea of making life so miserable here that immigrants are literally purged from the country so it's hurt badly but hispanics. the strategy, that strategy means as you point out in your excellent paper, really the southwest is out of reach in large part because of this. they've pulled off the mexico. they have a shot in colorado and nevada but if the turnout is high not much. so thankfully the hispanic strategy that the romney strategy has been let's talk about the economy. the cuban americans and puerto ricans and in hopes we can peel off just enough of them because maybe that will be the trick. the problem is in florida of the hispanic electorate has changed quite significantly. the fastest-growing group are dimond puerto rican latin american immigrants for whom immigration is a defining issue in a litmus test issue. roughly a third now. so i suspect he's going to have a hard time winning florida in part because of the changing demographics of the latino elect
. it was almost ignored. the romney story lasted for three days at a time when u.s. policy in the region was in collapse. which is almost entirely ignored. i think but we saw in the poll how people conceive this is exactly right. they watch and see and quite obvious which way the bias is going. >> we would like to know your thoughts on how the media has covered it and what the administration was doing. please find us on twitter. get to your headlines. widespread criticism for not meeting with benjamin netanyahu. called israel's prime minister on the phone. the white house said most leaders agreed they must prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. mitt romney also speaking with netanyahu about the country which he calls the world's greatest national security threat. >> we have very much have the same interests to make sure that iran does not develop nuclear capability which would threaten the existence of israel. threaten devastation potentially in other nations of the world we must make every effort to prevent them from making that nuclear capability. >> romney says he believes ther
weeks ago was the reverse. the obama campaign saying the romney campaign is coming off. you don't want to be on the defensive. what the debates should be about, it's a contest of character but it's also a contest of policy. staying on policy is more productive. i don't know that the american people take any of this seriously. the constant attack on the other. i think obama was saying this is the nature of politics. i think both camps have done things that are inappropriate. but politics as usual. megyn: can he change the momentum of this campaign when he gets to wednesday's debate? the president seems to have taken the lead in a couple swing states this week. so governor romney is clearly looking at that. >> what the president is taking the lead in most effectively. putting governor romney totally on the defensey which is not where he needs to be with the economy being what it is. and that is why it's so critical while he's on the same stage as president obama. no real filter in between. for him to turn around and say, mr. president, how can you make an affirmative case that we are bet
with romney should be read as not just a gaffe, but to some extent been delightfully honest in a sense about where today's gop is coming from in terms of their attitude towards economic and public policy. and i think that's within a millstone around the neck and, this would not win an election in the beginning for them either. but let's just say they haven't maximized their opportunity. so that's my take on what's going on but i hope you guys are going to check out the report, look at some of those cool maps and charts in it, absorb all the data to go be a short quiz later. but before that i want to bring up this great panel that will discuss all these issues and much more indeed excruciating detail. so why don't you all come up here and we will get started. you guys sit where you want. >> let me very briefly introduce the panel. to my left is anna greenberg, senior vice president of greenberg quinlan rosner research, one of my favorite pollsters did not only does she go out and take the pulse of the nation but she always has intelligent and interesting things to say about it. to my right is
